Reflecks™ Dimensions Brilliant Copper GC90D is an effect pigment composed of iron oxide, titanium dioxide, and silicon dioxide coated onto a borosilicate substrate. The pigment delivers a metallic copper color with high chromaticity. The average particle size of 67 μm results in a sparkly appearance. The pigment is ideal in applications where an intense metallic coper color and sparkle are desired. This product, and others that may be developed in the future, typically consist of titanium oxide / iron oxide and silicon dioxide and borosilicate platelets in varying ratios. They could potentially be used in a broad range of cosmetic and personal care applications, especially in color cosmetics. Attached are a number of formulations demonstrating the use of the Reflecks™ Dimensions Brilliant Copper GC90D. These examples are not meant to be limiting in any way, and one skilled in the art will readily find many other applications and combinations of cosmetic ingredients, colorants, and the above disclosed pigments.
